Pretzels and Easter

3 April 2014

This Thursday evening we had Easter related activities as it was the last meeting before Easter for a couple of weeks as the Leeds schools took a 2 week break (most other schools still had another week to run before they then broke up!).

It was great having Baloo join us again tonight and she, Dizzy and Oo (who had managed to get some hold of a lot of pretzel dough from The Street Lane Bakery)


then helped the Cubs to make Pretzels – which they seemed to have a great time doing judging by these photos! 🙂

Whilst half the Cub Pack were making pretzels, myself and Kaa did some Easter activities with the other group before swapping over.

Using the great Programmes Online Scouting resource, I had downloaded “Religious Festivals – A match made in the Hall” which is “… a game to help learn about some of the major religious festivals and events of the worlds major religions. Includes Christian (Western and Eastern Orthodox), Sikh, Islamic, Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu and China”. I had printed the months of the year each on a seperate page, which we then stuck to the wall and the Cubs then had to stick notes on each for which month hosted which festival, .e.g. Easter in April, and Christmas in December.

I also had a couple of other Easter games – guess the number of mini eggs in the bottle:


… which Akela won, coming closest by guessing 124. There were actually 125! (She did share them with everyone though 🙂 )


and an Easter cross-word game and Guess the number of eggs in the image, taken from the Cadbury’s Easter Trail Pack!

Oo’s husband, Jason, pitched in and hid a load of Cadbury’s creme eggs outside the Church (it had been a nice evening!) – which the Cubs then VERY excitedly ran round hunting them down … Thank you for sorting this, Jason 🙂


Finally, we finished the evening off by getting the Cubs back into “horse-shoe” and looking at the things that some of the Cubs had not been able to present in last week’s, “Show and Tell” evening. Sam E brought down his electric guitar and did an awesome “un-plugged” demo with it!


Henry M showed us a slideshow on a tablet of him making a meal for his Chef’s Badge and James A showed us a brilliant menu and some photos of his meal for the same badge. Louis M also talked about football for his Sports Enthusiast Badge.

Awards: Joseph R received his Chef Badge. Louis G got his Cyclist Badge. Thomas W and Josh W got their Collectors Badges. James A and Ben S received their Sports Enthusiast Badges. Henry U got his Martial Arts Badge and last (but not least) Sammy R received his Swim 2 Badge. – Great work, Cubs!!

Don’t forget Cubs.. we’re not meeting now for the next TWO Thursdays – 10th and 17th April. We’ll meet up again on the 24th April where we’ll start the Summer Term Programme
